Post Typing

How many words can you type in a minute?
Do you look at the keyboard when you type?

How many I type is 75 words a minute.
Mostly of the time I don't look at the keyboard but sometimes. I do when I'm on a different computer. Different keyboards.

Me too, I normally keep my fingers on the home keys.
I see people that type with their two pointer fingers, but very slowly too.

I'm not really sure. Around 85 probably. I always look at the screen.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...

Not sure how fast but I touch type so I'm very fast when I want to be. I don't have to be looking at the keyboard or the screen when I'm typing which is a very useful skill for allowing me to watch the interesting bits on tv or when I'm typing something up from a sheet.

100 words per minute. I don't use the home key but I don't just use 2- fingers. I use basically my thumbs, pointers, and middle fingers. I don't usually look at the keyboard.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

I know I used to be 110/min but I haven't checked recently and that was about 6 months ago? I have no idea if its any different now but I do know that I spend most of my day with access to a computer so it will probably be better if not the same.

I'm not sure about words in a minute but when typing, I change my eyes between the screen and keyboard.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

73 wpm, I just took a test thing haha. I type with only four fingers and they're not on the right letters, they kind of just hover near the keyboard and poke whatever letter they're near haha. I could never learn regular typing
